The Wardenclyffe V2 is a faithful recreation of the original Wardenclyffe only shrunk down a bit. The only actual difference between the original and the V2 is a slightly faster clock speed to provide a slight improvement in the speed of processing.
The Wardenclyffe is a lo-fi ambient modulator. It emulates the magical lo-fi textures of early audio recordings.
Inspired by Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower, the pedal attempts to capture the essence of one of the most mysterious and odd scientists of the century.
The Wardenclyffe wears many hats: it is a pitch modulator, vintage low pass, high pass filter, & ambient pad reverb.
Depending on knob positions, it can be used subtly as a vibrato, chorus, or pad reverb… or by cranking the filter, depth, and wet knobs you can get into extremely nauseating lo-fi territory.
All elements combined, it provides all the tools you need to get that beautifully broken lo-fi texture you’ve been dreaming of.
Knob and Switch Description:
WET: Controls volume of wet signal. At full turn, this goes above unity gain.
DRY: Controls volume of dry signal. At full turn, this matches unity gain.
HP/LP: Switches between High Pass Filter (UP) and Low Pass Filter (DOWN)
FILTER: Blends between filtered signal and clean signal. Filters have a fixed cutoff frequency.
PAD: Switches on a “below-the-mix” ambient reverb that sits just at the edge of infinite sustain.
LFO/GLITCH: Selects modulation source for pitch-bending. LFO is a standard SINE wave. Glitch is a how a SINE wave acts after a few drinks.
DEPTH: Controls the depth of the pitch-bending modulation.
SPEED: Controls the speed of the pitch-bending modulation.
